This one was mine. A friend pulled out this cassette on our drive home from school, and said "you guys gotta hear this". It blew me away.

You need to play him the music of my people - the ska punks. Perhaps the horns will speak to him as they did to me.
Losing Streak is a top ten album for me.

I had a friend try to introduce me to Skain Pickle at the time and I rejected them along with Humungousfungusaomngus. He did, however, forever make me fall in love Camper Van Beethoven and Big Black in 86 or 87.

We did a bit of cultural education for the boy tonight: Smells Like Teen Spirit ("When does this song end? Is it over yet?"), 4' 33" ("This is boring."), and Rapper's Delight (intrigued silence). One out of three ain't bad.
I had to look up 4'33", never heard of that before. Is there some joke here that's just sailing over my head
We watched a YouTube video of a live performance. I didn't tell him in advance what to expect.

After about 30 seconds, he asked "What are they doing?", and I explained that 4' 33" is whatever ambient noise you hear -- for me, it was leaves rustling in the tree outside our window, cars on the street, and him chewing pretzels.

He wasn't fazed by this profound insight and said, "This is boring."

I replied, "Now the song is you saying 'This is boring.'"

He countered, "Poop poop poop poooooop!"

Now you made me look up 4'33". I saw the name John Cage and looked no further and I assume AWS 2.0. The others? Well, how old is the little one?

One of the best shows I've been to was the tour for this album. Caught a drumstick. Big fun. I want this music played at my funeral.

Personally, I'm a purist. I only dig First Wave ska.

If it's not from Jamaica pre 1967 it's not real ska.

Jill Janus, lead singer of Huntress, committed suicide yesterday at 43 years old. I was never a huge fan, but they did a hell of a job doing some straight-up, old-school heavy metal. RIP Jill. :(

I am having a great afternoon listening to (and watching music videos from) FKA Twigs. Her music is wonderfully weird and disturbing, and she's an amazing dancer.

The barely contained fury and chaos of the new Anaal Nathrakh album (came out today) fits today's mood perfectly.

I've made it through the album a couple times and love it...really solid from start to finish.

I was lucky enough to see them a few years ago when Afterman was released and they were amazing. Despite the complexity of a lot of their songs, they sounded almost like the recordings live. Totally awesome show Image

I can believe it. I listen to a lot of their live stuff via Youtube and I think I saw them perform a "live" show on a Guitar Center exclusive via DirecTV at some point. There's so much going on in every song - things I only pick up on when I have headphone on or it's blasting at hearing-loss levels in my car. Guitar or drum fills, sometimes even the backing vocals. That's what makes stripped down versions like this:



Even more amazing to me. I only just found out this song is about the drummer's heroin addition (and recovery), but it's been another that's in my rotation. I like it even more than the album version.

I've been disappointed.

In retrospect, the fact that I was alerted to it on release day via a banner ad in my fantasy baseball league website probably should have been a sign.

I've been enjoying it, particularly the songs sung by Dan. It's their first album in 5 years, and their 9th overall. That has to mean something! I'd love to see this live.



I saw them play a show back in the early 2000s. One of the shortest shows I've ever been to, but they were solid.

VNV Nation's latest album Noire is off to a good start with this track, A Million:




Among other things, I've pretty much had Gloryhammer on repeat since seeing them live. They've also piqued/re-piqued my interest in power metal, so I've been listening to Blind Guardian's entire catalogue for the first time (outside of Beyond the Red Mirror and Battlefield, the amazing song from Robot Unicorn Attack: Heavy Metal). One of my favourites is Mordred's Song from 1995's Imaginations from the Other Side.

Listening to a little late 90s.
Back when Paul Rudd was the secret front-man for 3EB!

I know they're not the greatest, but their first CD came out just as I was graduating college and moving into my first apartment, ready to have the most ridiculous year of my life. There are a number of CDs and songs that came out that year that are forever inked on my brain simply because of the time and I won't apologize for liking them!

Trivia: The bassist in 3EB for that debut album (Arion Salazar) was the composer for the soundtrack of Interstate '76.
